It doesn’t seem strange it is the engangement ring or a necklace; diamonds are the weakness of every woman. Besides that, they always make whoever wears them stand out from the crowd. But if the diamond is fake, it won’t be the same; that is why there are some ways to know if it is accurate.
It does not matter if it is jewelry that you get as a gift or inherited; it is straightforward to do a few tests to determine if the stone you have is natural. That necklace you have that doesn’t seem to cost a lot; it could end up costing a fortune. So we tell you five tips to identify if it is false.
- See the diamond with a magnifying glass.
When you see the diamond through a magnifying glass, you first have to notice that it has imperfections because it grows in nature. Second, the corners of a natural diamond are pointed, unlike a false one, which is circular.
- Rub it with sandpaper
When rubbing it with sandpaper, if it is real, it will not have to be scratched. So if at the time of doing it, you will know that it is false.
- Fog it up a bit
Blow out some hot air, just like you would in the bathroom mirror after showering. A fake diamond would tarnish a bit, and the real one wouldn’t. It is because diamond does not retain heat.
- Put it up against the light.
The way a diamond shines is unique. A real one will have gray tones inside the stone, while the surface will throw colors like the rainbow. In the fake diamond, only rainbow colors can be seen within the stone.
- See your refractive index.
Put your diamond on a newspaper, and if the glitter is still the same color, it is accurate. If the second gloss is black by the newspaper, this is the false one.
Property of pure Diamond
Below are few of property of pure Diamond engagement ring
The purity or clarity of the diamond refers to the amount and size of tiny imperfections or inclusions that can be found in its interior or superficial part. These impurities can be from a cloud, a minor fracture, liquid, or even a diamond within another. To catalog the purity, an international table classifies the diamond by the amount and size of impurities.
The cut or size is the element that allows revealing the brilliance of the diamond. It is the only criterion among the 4C that depends on the excellent work of the craftsman to achieve all the beauty of the stone. The cut or carving refers to the proportions of the stone. The diamond shines and sparkles depending on its size. If its proportions are not correct, it will shine less because the light inside it will not be adequately reflected.
We can have a perfect purity, an exquisite cut, and a large size, but if the color does not accompany the brilliant, it will leave much to be desired. To catalog the color, we use an international table that starts from D (colorless) to Z (yellow).
Conclusion: So if you are going to buy a diamond ring, make sure that you only buy pure one for your better half.
